FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOCAL DEMOCRATS URGE COMMUNITY MEMBERS TO VOTE EARLY
Go door to door to encourage Monroe County Residents to support a forward agenda for the state of Indiana
The Monroe County Democratic Party is organizing an Early Vote Day of Action on Saturday, October 4. Democratic volunteers will knock on hundreds of doors and make over 1,000 phone calls to members of their community urging them to take advantage of early voting, which begins Tuesday, October 7. The day of action includes a gathering at 2 p.m. at the Democratic Party Headquarters in which candidates for state and local office will speak to volunteers and members of press on the importance of voting early in a state that imposes substantial impediments to voter participation.
“Voting should be a simple process, said Jeff Sparks, Democratic candidate for State House District 62, referring to state’s strict voter ID requirement. “We need to do all we can to give ordinary Hoosiers a voice in their government. Our opponents insist in impeding this constitutional right.”
Rally with Democratic Candidates (press availability)
Saturday, October 4, at 2 p.m.
Monroe County Democratic Party Headquarters, 335 S. College Ave
Democratic candidates for Congress all the way to Township Board are working for a shared platform that represents the needs of all Hoosiers, not special interests or large corporations.
“The residents of Monroe County are our priority,” said Shelli Yoder, who currently represents and is running for Monroe County Council District 1. “That is why we go door to door to speak with our friends and neighbors to listen to their needs and advocate for quality jobs, safe streets, and a greater standard of living for all.”
Canvass shifts will take place from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. and from 2 p.m. - 5 p.m. At 2p.m. Sparks, along with Democratic Candidates will be available to the press.
